The interplay of correlation and topology could give rise to novel properties. In this presentation we report our investigation of a layered magnetic Dirac material EuMnBi2, by using transport and STM. EuMnBi2 exhibits rich magnetic textures, by controlling which distinct electronic structures are accessible. Antiferromagnetically ordered Eu ions decouple the Bi layers which host Dirac fermions, leading to the emergence of multilayer Quantum Hall effect as revealed by our transport data. The application of an external magnetic field drives the material into different states. The STM reveals well defined steps after low temperature cleavage. Local spectroscopy finds features derived from Bi, in good agreement with band structure calculations.
